No, you're tearing up watching how much love for the show everyone involved in Reading Rainbow had, watching the documentary.

Extremely tempted to try to go to @xoxo
I don’t feel like I have any work worthy of it just yet… but it would be a good motivator to get some stuff together by then.

I love the form factor of my little iPhone 12 Mini …but I am so ready for a phone that doesn’t constantly overheat and run out of batteries like 7 times a day

@knizer I think it’s mostly just chronic, I know there’s stuff I can try to make it better but mostly I just accept that I need a new phone.

@misc@mastodon.social avatar

@knizer Yeah I think the issue is that a larger phone allows for a larger battery, but doesn't actually use that much more power. So a Pro Max should last much longer. Still, probably worth attempting some clean up, to make the next few months more livable.

Exciting news, the Beer Garden is coming back on Friday! Possibly the most charmingly uncool beer garden in the area, and therefore my favorite.

@bikepedantic We should do the next Boston there

Tempted to make it a combined / (?)

If you're not on threads, this is the kind of entertainment you're missing out on

I don't want to get too carried away with extrapolations, but it's wild to see engagement on Mastodon and Bluesky blow X away, for essentially the same posts, on accounts with ~10-15% the followers.

The good news is, the AI will probably always be too buggy to reach Skynet level.

The bad news is, these fuckers are going to try and make Skynet.

@Adam_Cadmon1 @uncapybarable It would probably just confidently assume it was speaking with perfect fluency and shoot anyone who didn't understand

this is where I’m coming from with for changing culture, we need to rescue the idea of change/innovation/evolution from capitalism and its bros and girl bosses. We need a working vision & definition of technology that centers long term societies oriented around life itself, not just short term profits for a few. this is def a note to self for my upcoming book lol https://fediscience.org/@steve/112486844345257840

Time to peel myself off the floor and build myself a couch

Well I did the first step which was disassembling the existing couch, unfortunately turns out assembly requires two people and wife is still at work, so back on the floor I go

One thing Mastodon (or a fork) could do to win some users over from Bluesky, is support taking your account private. It's wild that X and Threads are the only big post-Twitter microblogging platforms that allow this.

misc,
@misc@mastodon.social avatar

@jdp23 @kissane I guess I need to review how all this works - to be clear, the issue you're raising is that instances retain data, right? So, when I load your timeline, mastodon.social isn't making a fresh request to blahaj.zone, it's loading it from a cache? How long does it keep that?

Let's imagine a hypothetical, where someone deleted all their posts, or their account altogether? How long would phantoms of it stay on instances?

misc,
@misc@mastodon.social avatar

@jdp23 @kissane If mass post deletion doesn't reliably work, then that's not an acceptable state of affairs, and needs a spotlight on it. If it does, then "going private" could be the equivalent of that, except for trusted servers. Also, fwiw I was imagining separate keys for each connection ... as if they're proper DMs. Not sure what the computational overhead for that would be for people with a lot of connections.

misc,
@misc@mastodon.social avatar

@jdp23 Again though, it seems like if an instance issued "mass deletion" commands to untrusted/unsupported instances (for any recent posts - I assume instances don't generally cache everything indefinitely?), and issued a more nuanced instruction to trusted instances that supported the procedure, it would be effectively a "shields up" move, right? And then, it could "restore" those posts later. I assume I'm missing something just trying to figure out what it is!

UPDATE

Did the tree fight back?
Did a wandering critter have a delicious dinner followed by a very strange night?
